autoconf meddles with LANG and LC_CTYPE

One could reasonably expect that those values are set such that a
shell script might work.  Autoconf tries unsetting them and replacing
them with C.

I have tests in one of my configure scripts that try to find out
whether there is a language environment set up compatible with the
application to be configured.

Of course, those tests don't work properly.  Is there any advice
about how to write code that would work across several autoconf
versions and that would let me run the tests with the original LANG
and LC_CTYPE settings?

It is pretty bad if building the version from CVS fails for all but a
single autoconf.
